Good grief, I'm late this week! I'm blaming it on pregnancy brain (I've been blaming A LOT of things on pregnancy brain). I'm about 17 and a half weeks along by now, and definitely starting to show! It's been so much fun - the crib and changing table have been delivered and assembled, and I've been window shopping for curtains and wallpaper. After a lot of debate, we've decided to go for a kind of animal safari theme for the nursery.
Oh, right, I forgot to share the news with you guys (see? pregnancy brain). We're having a boy!!! I seriously didn't expect it at all. My husband and I have three sisters EACH, so there's a lot of girls in our families. But I feel so blessed and excited!
Enough baby talk, let me show you guys some stitching. I finished Liberty Belles!
It still needs to be ironed out and finish-finished. I've stitched this two over one on 18-count Cork linen with DMC floss. Very happy to have this one done, because I did not enjoy this fabric at all!
I've also made some progress on my Little Sheep Virtues SAL:
This is Love at 400 stitches. I forgot to mention last week (do you see a pattern here?) when I posted my start on this, that it was a gift from the wonderful Kaye at Kitten Stitching, who's also part of this SAL. Thanks again, Kaye!
AND I've got a finish-finish to share with you all!
This is Faith, which I finished a couple of weeks ago. I finished it off the same way I finished Simplicity, Hope, and Joyfulness. Here's the backing fabric I used:
And here are all four sheep together:
I'm so happy with them! They're all so cute and fluffy. I can't wait to add Love to the collection...
